Saint Mary's Catholic Cemetery and Church

Saint Mary's Catholic Cemetery is a short distance 
southeast of Richmound, Saskatchewan.  

According to information from the Find A Grave 
website, the original Saint Mary's Church was built 
in 1918 and located northeast of Richmound.  The 
church was moved into town in 1928 and used for 
another thirty years at which time a new church 
was built.  

The last two photos in this set are the church built 
in 1958 and the Heritage Bell from the original 
church.  

The cemetery next to the original church was 
relocated to the current site.  Some of these graves 
were moved to the new cemetery, some remained 
behind while others were lost.  There are several
graves marked "unknown" in this cemetery.

This post is dedicated to Baby Cole Brown,
Cowboy Angel.
